    It's a sentence fragment.

    In formal writing, it is not considered a sentence.

    Also, please use correct grammar and punctuation when requesting assistance.
    I'm not a teacher yet, but I am studying a Bachelor of Education with an English Literature major at Charles Sturt University, in NSW, Australia.

    It is not a sentence as it has no main verb.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Remember to end each sentence with the relevant punctuation mark. Also, enclose the word/words you are querying inside quotation marks so that it is easy to see them.
    Thread titles should relate to the word/words being queried. A good title for this would have been "Being pregnant for the first time"

    As the others said, it's not a sentence on its own.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
